Some outdoor attractions are accessible not far from Riga, During summer it is luge track. It is longest in all the Baltic states and also with seven curves. You can catch scenic view while you go uphill because later when you go downhill you need to think only about speed :). There is also good tavern where you can enjoy meal and atmosphere after luge. In winter here is ski track, but I never tried it.

Take only what is really necessary. Take some clothes that mosquitoes can't get through and sandals or closed shoes would be suitable. And a rain coat and/or wind stoper jacket. You should definitely take some spray against mosquitoes, because most of the park's territory is wetland and last summer (2010) it was very warm and from...more
First of all, you have to know that it is more convenient to come here by car or to ride a bike so that you would be able to see all of the Kemeri Nactional Park's (Ķemeru nacionālais parks) objects, because they are not all at one place and there are too long distances to go by feet.If you are coming by train to the station "Ķemeri"...more

I would say, sculture park is only one small thing to do in Turaida. At least for me the main attraction was the Watch Tower from where one can see and take a photos of amazing nature of Latvia.
Second thing I liked a lot was shooting with the bow. It cost 2 euros (for 6 arrows).
Third thing were ponies and horses (more for my son but I also liked them)
Fouth thing was Sculture Park
Fifth thing was the Gardener house where was one nice exhibition inside.
